Nastiest Malware 2022Nastiest Malware
With 2023 around the corner, we’ve seen yet another eventful year for the threat landscape and malware continues to be center stage in the threats posed towards individuals, businesses, and governments. The infosec industry continues the struggle of the perpetual cat and mouse game tactics that haven’t really stopped since cybercriminals first started decades ago. This absolutely accelerated into overdrive the past 9 years with the mainstream adoption of ransomware payloads and cryptocurrency facilitating payments.If you’ve seen our writeup of Blackhat 2022, the keynote speakers noted that in 25 years of doing hacking conferences, we still don’t have a handle on what’s going on, and the surface area of attack is only growing so we all expect it to get worse.The ransomware double extortion tactic continues to be a match made in heaven for criminals and absolute hell for victims. Every major ransomware campaign has been utilizing a Tor leak site for data exfiltrated with the intention of

I have a Samsung laptop I have had Webroot on it since I bought it last year. It started running slow so I cleaned up everything and downloaded off of the factory installed Icon on my desktop, " SW updates" It had like 10 updates and as it was downloading it emptied my folders on my desktop and threw thumbnails of everything all over the screen and now I have one dotted line across the bottom of my screen that just now turned into two dotted lines! Any idea on what is going on, I have ran a webroot scan...comes back graphic ram is low but nothing else. Thanks for any help I am technologically illiterate.
For my Birthday my good wife bought me a DNA testing kit for Suzie. She has always been a mystery and the subject always comes up about "what is she?" when we are out so I thought it would be interesting for folks on here to give it a shot and say what they think are the 2 dominant breeds in her. We are intending to send the samples back on Monday and it is supposed to take about 2 weeks before the results are back. Any takers?

Hoping others feel the same way. I have been using Webroot for years and always recommended them. This Password Manager problem has me very much questioning my choices... Not really sure why it has taken so long to fix the problem or at least patch it until a fix could be made. It has cuased alot of problem for me and I dont even have all that many passwords stored there. I read a thread where someone had over 300 passwords stored.. oh my what a nightmare... I am still with there security for a long time as I purchased a long term plan the last time I renewed. My question is should I /we contiune using this after its been fixed. Are they going to compensate us for this problem. Think it would have been nice for them to keep us in the loop via Email what was happening ... End of my rant...

Please pardon all of my techie questions but I want to ask them before I spend more cash on yet another product that may or may not really fit my needs. Are there "basic" versions that do NOT want to manage my passwords and/or credit card information? (like so many other products want to point to as some wonderful "feature" aka: wonderfully packaged and sold security risk IMHO when there is no way to actually stop the underlying processes from still gathering and storing your passwords etc...) I am very particular about system resource use, running process, and communication ports being held open. (as another product wanted to hold 24 ports open at times - in port matched loop-back pairs... totally wasted resources, running process, services, threads, and handles.) Will these products potentially cause any unsolicited inbound packets to show up at my router? (I had issues with other products that were not using TCP/IP communicati
A new collaboration between IDG and Carbonite + Webroot has found that phishing attacks remain high two years since the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Phishing reached historic levels in February 2020, rising over 500% in just one month. But those increases had leveled off by the end of 2020 and it was unclear whether phishing’s highs were sustainable. So we spoke with 300 global IT executives, finding that 93% were still concerned about phishing with 61% highly concerned. It’s little wonder, given that 76% of respondents report that phishing is still up compared to the time before the pandemic. IT departments have taken the brunt of the assault, with sr. security analyst Tyler Moffitt saying “Even if malware targets someone with lower-level access, the attacker will move laterally to eventually find an IT administrator.” IT departments are targeted twice as often as the second highest target because attackers covet domain-level credentials that g
I recieved my.gift mail from webroot today. A pint glass , a pair of stickers, and a screen cleaner. Well maybe because the pint glass system is not so popular here in India, well the glass is frikkin huge. And sadly I dont have chilled beer in stock to fill that. All I had in my room was some high quality premium tea. We Indians are mainly tea lovers. So I used my "coffee maker" to brew up a pint of Tea. And sipping it while I am typing this. I am not much of a forumer and these.gifts even if they are not much as some had already complained in the forum about VIP program, they do mean something warm to me... warm as this Tea. I feel welcome. Again I would have found the screen cleaner more useful if it did not have a sticky side. I dont want a screen cleaner stuck to my phone's rear always. So I chose it to clean my laptop screen and so I stuck it beside my touchpad - Now it also works as a cozy smooth palm rest. :p About the stickers, why are they called stickers if the

Hello, I'm a newbie...........Kasie92 I have used Webroot for several years and when I saw the price for a renewal I called the company and stated that as I only ever us 1 PC I wanted a reduced price. (a closed mouth is never fed) They ended up giving me a discount. I did ask if the content would be the same. they said yes it would be the same.I have tried to use the optimize scan. It doesn't work. At first I thought is it me???? I found how to change the settings on what I wanted to be optimized but when I go to the scan area it's blank even though the name optimize is there. I know from reading these posts there are some talented people in here to help me. I await your phenomenal input. Kasie-92
It's been a great couple of years managing the Webroot community and I'm sad to leave, but an opportunity crossed my plate that I couldn't pass up. Don't worry, I'm leaving you in the capable hands of the rest of the community and social team until they can find a replacement community manager. If you need anything please ping ? ? ? or ? and they'll be able to help out. A big thank you to everyone who makes this community so great and who has been so wonderful to work with. Special thanks to ? ? ? ? ? ? (I'm sure I'm forgetting some, sorry!) I'll still stick around as a retired Webrooter account so that I can stay in touch and hear how you are all doing. This community is a very special place on the Internet - an example of professionalism, politeness and helpfulness that is rarely equaled. Thanks for allowing me to be part of it!
I am THE leaset tech savvy person on the planet and felt that I had scaled the summit of Mt. Everest when I figured out how to hook my laptop up to my personal Hot Spot device without having to call for help, so that should tell you what a remedial techie I am... The laptop I have is a HP Pavilion g7 with a full keyboard ( includes the 10 key pad on the right) and while I really enjoy using it, I am working with Windows 8 and when I tried to do the 8.1 upgrade it froze up my system, so I went back to version 8 and haven't upgraded since, which means that Windows 10 free upgrade passed me by, and, based on the complaints I heard about it, I don't really mind that I don't have it, however, Windows isn't sending me security updates anymore so that compromises my system, apparently. I am going to be going on a road trip in a few weeks and I wanted to have something smaller than the laptop I have now to take with me and keep up with business matters. Nothing like lugging
